HZP+Co Splashwater

Most of us would love a helping hand or ‘tool’ to assist with our little ones’ (and big ones’!) emotions when they’re out of whack. Whether they’re happy, sad, nervous or excited, kids can help manage these feelings themselves in a natural and fun way. Uniquely blended, naturally fragranced and perfect to keep in the school bag, car, handbag and bedroom. Fine for all skin types and safe to spray on anything…just keep it out of their eyes.
There are three different sprays – Calm Me Down, Wake Me Up and Freshen Me Up.

100ml $18.50


Robyn: “My kids loved this and so did I. My favourite was Calm Me Down – I sprayed it on my pillow at night.”

Judy: “I’m quite sensitive to fragrances and was pleasantly surprised with the citrusy scent. I used the Wake Me Up mist which, I felt, gave me a bit of a pep up in the mornings.”

Megan: “My skin just absorbed this. I’m prone to breakouts so I was pleased that it wasn’t too heavy. Loved the smell and easy application and, of course, the fact that the products aren’t tested on animals. My mum used the Hydrating Face Oil under the Face Cream which gave her the nourishment and hydration she was after.”

Revitalising Shampoo and Nourishing Conditioner
